The Gulf Hotel’s hugely successful Gulf Convention Centre was the first major meetings venue in the Kingdom of Bahrain when it launched in May 1997. In 2018 the Centre has been fully renovated featuring spectacular chandeliers that are equipped with the possibility to change colours to suite any theme of your choice, a state-of-the-art built in sound system and five 4-meter wide by 3-meter high digital HD screens.
The Convention Centre houses 33 venues and over 4,780 square meters of space for all types of events, from intimate business meetings to theatre-style conferences for up to 3,000 guests. All event venues are enhanced with natural charm, elegance and luxury, making the Gulf Convention Centre the ideal destination for exquisite and memorable events.
The Gulf Convention Centre remains at the forefront of Bahrain’s business scene today, superbly maintaining its status as the largest and most impressive meetings and events facility on the island.
The Centre’s crowning glory is its magnificent Al Dana Hall, which presents the perfect venue for international seminars, exhibitions, gala dinners, banquets, weddings and award ceremonies. It comes equipped with a main ballroom floor area, stretching over 1,604 square meters that can accommodate up to 3,000 guests for cocktail receptions and 1,260 for an elegant banquet.
An additional Exhibition Hall can hold 75 booths and boasts direct drive-in access, power supply units and light rigs, as well as the option to divide the hall into separate conference areas. A further 5 individual meeting rooms can cater to smaller meetings, while the Gulf Hotel’s tropical gardens are a popular venue for weddings, parties and other outdoor occasions. A sophisticated business centre, a VIP lounge and a bridal suite accompany these areas.
All conference rooms are fully equipped with the latest audiovisual equipment, including hi-tech projection systems, multiple power and telephone points, high-speed Internet access.
